          Today’s Takeaway: The Four Stages Of Readiness Explained


          February 13, 2018

          Dr. Phil says there are four levels of readiness that help you know when you’re ready to make a change in your life.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Conflict so big it needs a Dr. Phil solution?

          In the video above from after the show, he explains these four stages:

          1. Compelled by authority
          2. Complying to escape criticism
          3. Intellectually aware
          4. Mentally and emotionally self-motivated to change

          “It’s not until stage four that people really change,” Dr. Phil says. “That’s when somebody says, ‘I am so sick of this. I will not put up with this for another second of another minute of another hour of another day will I put up with this for myself.’ That’s when people change, and not one second before.”
